New(-ish) Tools Watch: 3D Coat 4.1

Posted on Fri 28 March 2014 in blog

Version 4.1 of 3DCoat just came out - details in the video above or at

3DCoat is an interesting voxel-based alternative to Zbrush. It deserves a lot of credit for really pushing the retopology business forward, and also for early PTex support. The interface is less idiosyncratic than Zbrush’s but less by-the-numbers than Mudbox.

Plus, it’s made in Kiev - buy a copy and stand up for Ukrainian independence!

Some cool feature videos if you’re curious:

UV tools
Curve-constrained sculpts
